Seals Come to Shoreham – A Talk by Stephen Savage

As part of Shoreham Wordfest local seal expert Stephen Savage will discuss the fascinating lives of these often-elusive mammals and the results of his study to date. Harbour seals, one of our most appealing of our Sussex mammals, have been the subject of a long-term study since 1989. As a special focus, Steve will tell the story of a young resident female harbour seal from Belgium that has delighted many people during lockdown and has helped reveal much about the life of seals in Sussex rivers. Discover the fascinating lives of these seals and there will be an opportunity to share your own personal Sussex seal encounters.
